Current Research

My article ‘Coarseness, Power, and Masculinity in Daphne du Maurier’s The Infernal World of Branwell Brontë’ has been accepted for a special issue of Brontë Studies. This was based on my paper at the Coarse Brontës conference in Durham in August 2017.

I have been invited to contribute a chapter to a book about St Paul’s cathedral. My chapter is entitled: ‘As þai makkyd & mynyd a meruayle þai founden’: Sacred Space, Memory, and Materiality in St Erkenwald.’

My next article will be entitled ‘Seized by Time: Sacred Space and Liturgical Time in the Life of Elisabeth of Spalbeek’ The article will be based on the paper that I presented at the Liminal Time and Space in Medieval and Early Modern Performance conference at the University of Kent, Canterbury, in September 2014.

I am currently writing a book about Daphne du Maurier, provisionally entitled Kingdoms of Her Own.

I am currently editing a volume of essays with Dr Laura Kalas Williams based on the ‘Margery Kempe Studies in the 21st Century’ conference that we co-organised in April 2018. I also have a longer term book project on The Book of Margery Kempe, provisionally entitled Objects, Places, and Exemplarity in The Book of Margery Kempe.
